Walmart experienced a water outage this afternoon after a contractor cut a water line located behind the store on Keyser Avenue in Natchitoches. The contractor called in a private plumbing company to repair the leak around 3pm. A utility pole located next to the cut line required stabilization while a repair hole was dug. The City of Natchitoches Utility department arrived with rapid response to hold the pole while the repairs were made.
Official on the scene expect all services to be fully restored today.
